There are lots of resources (past papers, videos etc) on line for Maths and a fair few for Physics. The best bet may be to buy a textbook, teach yourself with the aid of the online help and then find an exam centre (=any secondary school or college) willing to accept you as a private candidate and pay them to take the exams. (Even if you pay for a distance learning course you still have to find a centre and pay them for the exams as well)

It depends how you learn. If you are self motivated and can do the courses without a class then it would be fine for you. However, if you need a class have a look at your local adult educational college for an evening class. This way your not only getting direct feedback from a teacher but also meet and learn from the rest of the class.
Personally I've gone with the later, not only meeting some new friends but picking up a lot of tips from the other students on top of the experience from the teachers.
Also look at whether you want to do the fast track or slower normal version.
